Show Us Your Homescreen! 27th September, 2012
Another fortnight has past, and it’s time to announce our new winner of “Show Us Your Homescreen”!
But first I want to announce that due to requests from you guys (yes, we do listen) the “Show Us Your Homescreen” feature is going to be completely reworked. Rather than me only showing you one homescreen a fortnight, a new section of Android Australia is being prepared where all the submitted homescreens can be displayed. You can then peruse any and all the homescreens at your leisure. We will continue to feature one homescreen every two weeks, using the same format as we already are, so this new section will exist on top of the current.
In the meantime, homescreens will be submitted to email@example.com with the subject “Show Us Your Homescreen”, as before. All the rules and details can be found here, and remember that if you want any ideas for changing your launcher, then head over to our Launcher Roundup here. In the longer term, however, it’s our hope that homescreens can be submitted directly to the website, only requiring approval from an Android Australia member to go live.
At the moment we don’t have a timeline for when this new section will be ready to go, but rest assured we’ll let you know as soon as it does. In the meantime, keep those entries coming to make sure that when the time comes your homescreen is there to behold.
Now that’s out of the way, I want to say congratulations to our winner for this fortnight, Juzman!
I’ll hand it over to him to explain his setup.
Phone: Samsung Galaxy S2
OS: Cyanogenmod 10 (Jelly Bean)
Launcher: Nova Launcher (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.teslacoilsw.launcher)
Theme: Holo Red (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.cerqueira.theme.Red)
Widgets: Minimalistic Text (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.devmil.minimaltext)
Icons: MetroStation (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jp.u1aryz.products.metrostation)
I like having a minimalistic layout as you can see via the screenshot. I’ve always liked the minimalistic look. I only have one home screen, I have a “swipe up” gesture to get into the App drawer, which is catergorised by “Apps” and “Games”. The app drawer is slightly transparent.
I have the main icons I use in the dock (Messaging, Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Tapatalk, Instagram and Phone). I have nothing on my LockScreen except for the time, and battery status.
